I have only known the life as an artist. My father, an artist himself, believed in creativity, banning coloring books and instead I was given huge sheets of paper, paints, etc. and my father said, "Make your marks Michelle!" I have been doing so since then painting my beloved travels and hiking trips across the USA.
My love is landscape painting: Michigan's four seasons, Californias coastline, Lake Tahoes beautiful blue water, S. Dakotas never ending sky, Nevadas desert. I feel the artist must have been there, smelled the air, and experienced the view first hand to be able to translate that experience on canvas.
I paint with an impressionistic hand. Up close one can see the weavings of blues, violets, and silver in the water, but farther away the painting appears very realistic, almost photo-realistic.

Does anyone else have problems loading photos from Windows 10 to PIL? Mine always come out sideways and then I cannot correct them with the rotate button?
Lovely Egret and astute look from the eyes and long beak, the sea turned out great, especially the highlights and dark shadow of its form underneath.... view answer
